It can be hard to make a child-friendly game, especially one that captures the imagination of any adults playing. Harder still to translate a popular hobby game into an understandable and enjoyable experience for families. Yet that is exactly what Stonemaier Games have done with their flagship title Scythe. Albeit with a little help…

Father Hoby Chou used to play Scythe with his very capable six-year-old daughter, Vienna. The trouble arose when Vienna tried to teach the game to her peers. The many working parts proved a little too much. That’s when Hoby and Vienna set out to create a streamlined family friendly version of Scythe that was still recognisable as a Scythe game.

Just like 'big' Scythe, you will be choosing actions from your player mat. In My Little Scythe this is split into three parts: Move, Seek and Make. When choosing the move action, you may move both your minis (called seekers) up to two spaces if they aren't carrying anything or one space if they are. Seek is how you populate the board with resources and quests (quests are the equivalent of Scythe's encounters).

You take four dice and roll them, they will tell you which resource to place out on the board and where to place it. The main board is spilt into different hexes with a section of hexes being a colour, so if you roll a red apple you place an apple on to a red hex. You can earn friendship points by placing onto a hex occupied. The last choice you have is to make, this lets you make magic pie cards, pies themselves, or an upgrade for the move or make spots.
